Fielding Freed: The Things They Carried-Grunt Gear of the Vietnam War
May 6 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

The Horry County Museum and the AVX Foundation present a lecture by Fielding Freed on Saturday, May 6th, on grunt gear of the Vietnam War.

A grunt once said that with all the gear on his back he felt like a turtle and moved about as quickly. This hands-on program will show some of the gear used and carried by soldiers and Marines during the Vietnam War. Understanding some of the physical demands of jungle warfare starts with the equipment carried by our troops. Historian Fielding Freed will show and discuss original examples including rations, field gear, headgear, uniforms, and the all-important back pack radio used during Vietnam. Veterans and their families are encouraged to attend.

The program will begin at 1:00 pm in the McCown Auditorium located at 805 Main Street, Conway SC. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 843-915-5320 or email [email protected]. To view a full list of programs, visit our website at www.horrycountymuseum.org.

Loretta Lynn
May 6 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

For fifty years now, Loretta has fashioned a body of work as artistically and commercially successful – and as culturally significant – as any female performer you’d care to name.  Her music has confronted many of the major social issues of her time, and her life story is a rags-to-riches tale familiar to pop, rock and country fans alike.  The Coal Miner’s Daughter – the tag refers to a hit single, an album, a best-selling autobiography, an Oscar-winning film, and to Lynn herself – has journeyed from the poverty of the Kentucky hills to Nashville superstardom to her current status as an honest-to-goodness American icon.  Don’t miss your chance to see an American Legend perform many of her 52 Top 10 hits and 16 #1 singles!

Museum Matinees: Echoes of the Blue & Gray-Veterans of the Civil War
May 10 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

The 2017 Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with the film Echoes of the Blue & Gray: Veterans of the Civil War. The survivors of the American Civil War wished that their sacrifices be remembered. And, as they marched with thinning ranks into a new century, the invention of the motion-picture camera enabled technology to record their moving image, their faces and voices, allowing us to remember them as something more than a stilted pose, a bronze statue, or a name on a marble headstone. This collection of newsreels allows one for the first time to actually see and hear the gallant heroes of the American Civil War. This film features the 1913 and 1938 Gettysburg Reunion, 1917 Vicksburg Reunion; Famous Generals: Dan Sickles, Joe Wheeler, Nelson Miles; Famous Units: Irish Brigade, Forrest’s Cavalry, New York Zouaves; and the final reunions of the G.A.R. & U.C.V.

The film is free to the public and will be shown at 1:00 PM, Wednesday, May 10th, at the Horry County Museum, located at 805 Main Street in Conway.

The Horry County Museum Documentary Film Matinees will continue throughout 2017. For a full list of films, visit our website at www.horrycountymuseum.org. For more information, call the Horry County Museum at 843-915-5320 or e-mail [email protected].
